Trivia


 

    Album

  • Dimple Kapadia had almost finalised a role in the film "Sadma" (1983). However, she had to back out of it because she was under contract for this film.[1][2]
  • Dimple Kapadia created a flutter with a brief topless scene in this film.
  • This was the only Hindi film for which Kamal Haasan won a Filmfare Award for Best Actor. In what was a rare instance, he was also nominated for a Filmfare Award in the Best Supporting Actor category for the same film.
  • This was Madhur Jaffery's only Hindi film appearance. The film also featured her ex-husband, actor Saeed Jaffrey.

    Song

  • O Maria - The mukhda of this song was adapted from the song "Mamunia" by Paul McCartney's band Wings. "Mamunia", written by Paul and Linda McCartney, first appeared in the album "Band On The Run" (1973).[3]
  • Saagar Kinare Dil Yeh Pukare - R.D. Burman re-used portions of the tune of "Hamen Raaston Ki Zaroorat Nahin Hai" ("Naram Garam", 1981) in this song. He also re-used some portions of "Hamen Raaston Ki Zaroorat Nahin Hai" in the title song of "Agar Tum Na Hote" (1983). "Hamen Raaston Ki Zaroorat Nahin Hai" itself had predecessors in Bollywood - "Thandi Hawayen" ("Naujawan", 1951), "Tera Dil Kahan Hai Sab Kuch Yahan Hai" ("Chandni Chowk", 1954), "Yehi Hai Tamanna Tere Dar Ke Samne" ("Aap Ki Parchhaiyan", 1964) and "Rahen Na Rahen Hum" ("Mamta", 1966).[4][5][6][7][8][9]
  • Saagar Kinare Dil Yeh Pukare - The tune of this song was used in the themes for the opening and end credits of this film.
  • Sach Mere Yaar Hai - Percussionist Homi Mullan played the reso reso in this song.[10]
  • Saagar Jaisi Aankhon Wali (Chehra Hai Ya Chand Khila Hai) - R.D. Burman had given the tune for this song to Javed Akhtar but the lyricist could not find words that fit its metre. He wrote the song's lyrics anyway and told Burman about his predicament. The composer asked Akhtar to read out the lyrics to him and wrote it down as he did so. Much to Javed Akhtar's amazement, R.D. Burman started singing the song as soon as he had finished writing the lyrics.
  • Saagar Jaisi Aankhon Wali (Chehra Hai Ya Chand Khila Hai) - The female chorus in the second antara of this song was also used in the theme of the film's opening credits as well as in the "Jalpari Theme". R.D. Burman later used the tune of this chorus for the antara of the song "Tune Kiya Kya Jadu" ("Apne Apne", 1987).[11]
  • Yunhi Gaate Raho - Percussionist Homi Mullan played the castanet in this song.[12]
  • Jalpari Theme - The prelude of this instrumental track was inspired by Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (1975). R.D. Burman used the composition of this prelude in two other songs - the Bengali song "Tumi Kato Je Dure" sung by him and Asha Bhosle for a Pujo album, and the non-film song "Aaja Aaja Meri Jaan" sung by S.P. Balasubramaniam and Anuradha Paudwal. In addition to "Tumi Kato Je Dure" and "Aaja Aaja Meri Jaan", the tune of R.D. Burman's vocalisation in this theme song was also used in the song "Aaja Mere Pyar Aaja" ("Heeralaal Pannalaal", 1978). [13][14][15][16]
  • Jalpari Theme - This theme track was not part of the film's original audio release. However, Universal released it separately as part of a compilation of instrumental tracks composed by R.D. Burman. Some later versions of the film album included this track as well.
